On the 9-1-1 tapes Cornelissen can be heard telling the dispatcher, "A guy stopped me, I think something's wrong with his wife. He doesn't speak very good English. He stopped me on the side of the road."

"The mom was sitting in the front seat, she had a blanket and all I saw was the top of the baby's head," Cornelissen said.

It turns out the man and his wife were on the way to the hospital to have a baby. They didn't make it in time, and the woman gave birth in their car. The new dad flagged Cornelissen down after the couple discovered the baby wasn't breathing.
